|Well we took Stottlemeyer to the vet specialist yesterday to get a CT Scan done on the oral tumor in her mouth. We were told that the tumor was too big to remove...it would probably require several surgeries. And that would not stop the growth of her cancer, which has already moved all the way up to behind her right eye. In addition, chemotherapy would not work for this type of cancer. The vet said we could do raditation treatments, which would be 5 days a week for 4 weeks, but if anything that would only possibly slow down the growth of the cancer, and that is not even a guarantee. So basically we were told that there is nothing that will cure Stottlemeyer's cancer. She is only 4 years old. And we really don't know what kind of time frame we have for Stottlemeyer. We are not going to put her through extensive radiation treatments for a month when they may not even work (she would have to fast for half the day, end up eating with a feeding tube, etc).
My qiestion to you all is, have any of you ever tried any alternative (holistic) treatments to slow down (maybe cure?) your cat's cancer? If so, did the treatments work? So far I have heard of an herbal remedy called C-Caps and also a cat cancer kit which includes a bottle of ES Clear and 1 jar of granular Greens. Have any of you tried these products? Have any of you ever gone to a holistic vet? There doesn't seem to be any holistic vets in my area (Orlando. FL)...the closest one is 50 miles away. But I would be willing to travel if I thought it would extend my Stot's life. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
PS Have any of you ever heard that it is better to give cats bottled water than tap water?
